Twins sign first-round pick Trevor Larnach
Just a week after his heroics led Oregon State to a College World Series victory, Trevor Larnach officially signed a contract with the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.
Selected 20th overall in the 2018 MLB draft by the Twins, Larnach’s signing bonus is worth a reported $2.55 million, which is $570k under slot value for that pick.
The 21-year-old outfielder finished his collegiate career with a bang. His go-ahead homer in Game 2 of the College World Series helped keep Oregon State alive and, eventually, clinch its third title in program history.
